Winter Sports Performance


Beginning on Monday, November 3, our  strength and conditioning coach, Dustin Weber, CSCS, will continue our performance program for all LHS athletes who are not currently participating in a winter sport.  What is the Performance program?  For those that are not familiar with it, the mission of the program is to “to develop championship caliber, multi-sport athletes with an emphasis on year-round training.”

Performance sessions will run 2:55 pm to 3:55 pm, Mondays through Thursdays.  It is the goal of the LHS coaching staff (all 22 sports!) that all winter and spring athletes plan to attend these workouts.

Please note that the weight room will only be open after school for athletic performance sessions. There will not be “open lifting” times. Athletic performance sessions will be offered after school from2:55 pm to 3:55 pm Monday through Thursday. Students participating in these sessions will follow the training program provided.  In-season teams will have scheduled training sessions with their team.

Coaches are not permitted to take athletes into the weight room and allow them to work out outside of the 2:55 to 3:55 pm block of time.

The Lutheran High School Strength and Conditioning/Performance Program is designed to provide our student-athletes the following:  a program that is committed to developing athletes into champions in their respective sports; to provide every athlete with the very best evidenced-based exercise programs; a program dedicated to improving our athletes strength, speed, agility, power, and flexibility; to develop team bonding, leadership, mental toughness, and discipline through rigorous physical and mental test; and to properly educate our athletes on the importance of rest, injury prevention, and nutrition.

Further, LHS and our individual 22 athletic programs have worked hard creating a unified culture of performance training.  Creating a unified program that has the support of physical education staff, coaches, and athletes is a key to building the best possible performance program. The head performance coach will work closely with the coaching staffs of each sport to develop a program appropriate for the athletes participating in that sport.

To that end, the LHS performance philosophy centers on creating an atmosphere that allows each student-athlete to maximize their potential and achieve the highest level of athletic development possible while learning skills and values that will help them maintain a healthy lifestyle in the future.

Program Objectives:

1.  Provide a safe, competitive, energetic and positive training environment
2.  Decrease chances of injury through conditioning and exercises that ensure muscle balance and flexibility
3.  Enhance balance and stability through functional training using sport specific exercises
4.  Educate athletes in proper training techniques and weight room protocols
5.  Instill an appreciation of hard work and commitment in LHS athletes

Primary Goals of the LHS Performance Program:

1.  Glorify God in our training, words, and actions
2.  Stimulate positive physiological adaptations
3.  Improve confidence and mental toughness
4.  Intensity under coach’s supervision
5.  Progression and Recording Data
6.  A Variety of Total Body Training
7.  Reduce the likelihood and severity of injury

If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact Dustin Weber via email at weber@lhssc.org.
